Bentley Elevates Three Execs

Written by Marybeth Luczak, Executive Editor

Bentley Systems (BSY), an infrastructure engineering software firm, has promoted Nicholas Cumins to Chief Operating Officer, Werner Andre to Chief Financial Officer, and David Hollister to Chief Investment Officer, effective Jan. 1, 2022.

Also, Ray Bentley (pictured bottom left) will retire in December following 37 years of service as BSY Executive Vice President; he will remain on the Board of Directors.

Nicholas Cumins (top left), currently Chief Product Officer, is assuming the newly created role of COO, adding responsibilities for BSY’s sales and marketing, user success, and business operations.

Werner Andre will not only take on the CFO role, succeeding David Hollister (middle left), but also retain the position of Chief Accounting Officer. He is currently CAO and Vice President, Global Corporate Controller.

“Since joining BSY in 2020 and adding large-public-company general management experience to our executive team, Nicholas Cumins has helped us continuously improve our processes in setting and executing on our business priorities,” BSY CEO Greg Bentley said. “This is a natural expansion of his product responsibilities as Nicholas has been heading BSY’s Operating Council where our line executives have already embraced his collaborative leadership. …

“It is gratifying that our leadership development process enables us to promote Werner now to step up as CFO and to add focus on external financial constituencies as we graduate seamlessly from our ‘emerging growth company’ status. At the same time, the investment responsibilities that David Hollister will retain and expand are crucial to achieving the ‘generational’ growth opportunities we foresee around the infrastructure digital twin ecosystem.”
